German grammar and orthography are almost impossible to understand to 
non-German speakers. You did a swell job, but your's is not the correct 
translation. "Musikerleben" is a combined word, but it is NOT 
Musiker-Leben but Musik-Erleben. Thus it is not a question of 
"musicians' lives" but "reception of music". (The final "s" in 
Musikerlebens is not a plural but a genitive.)

In the spring of 1991 a conference was announced, in German: "Zur Relevanz 
naturwissenschaftlicher Methoden für die Frage des Musikerlebens", of which a 
correct translation into English is: "On the relevance of the methods of 
exact science for the question of musicians' lives".
